Quebec priests challenge the Vatican – good for them!

A group of Roman-Catholic priests from Quebec have challenged the church’s opposition to same-sex marriage and actively gay priests in an open letter published yesterday.

I’m happy to see this group from Quebec promoting tolerance and inclusion – something that our society needs.

Have a read of this artcle in the Globe and Mail, “Quebec priests challenge same-sex stand”.

Excerpt from Globe and Mail article:

The letter also criticizes the Canadian bishops’ presentation to Parliament that opposed Bill C-38 on same-sex marriage. “Was there any trace of the compassion that marked Jesus’s passage on Earth? Not a paragraph, not a sentence in your brief that takes into account the historical discrimination against homosexuals and the tragedy of their social and ecclesial exclusion.”
